Online notification of the making of statutory instrumentsFollowing the commencement of the remaining provisions of the Interpretation Amendment Act 2006, the following statutory instruments are to be notified on the official NSW legislation website (www.legislation.nsw.gov.au) instead of being published in the Gazette:
(a) all environmental planning instruments, on and from 26 January 2009,
(b) all statutory instruments drafted by the Parliamentary Counsel’s Office and made by the Governor (mainly regulations and commencement proclamations) and court rules, on and from 2 March 2009.
Instruments for notification on the website are to be sent via email to email@example.com or fax (02) 9232 4796 to the Parliamentary Counsel's Office.
These instruments will be listed on the "Notification" page of the NSW legislation website and will be published as part of the permanent "As Made" collection on the website and also delivered to subscribers to the weekly email service.
